Re: Anxiety and bad posture
Actually i have noticed that. Keeping the neck straight and shoulders back opens up the chest to breath better. Stress can cause anxiety too and depression. And those two things will cause slouching and slumping as well. All the pain in the back and nerve compression from bad posture could possibly cause tingling and tightness in the chest and back muscles as well as stomach issues. All of that together can really cause a lot of worry and awful feelings and fatigue. Also, all of the pain and tightness can be the cause of higher blood pressure and faster heart rate just from stress on the body. Things like that with your heart cause many feelings of anxiety.
